There are versions of Linux that work on your Macintosh - that way
you can easily  try it out. No need to buy a PC. If you use Unix,
you have a few extra choices: PyKDE/PyQt or PyGnome.

Well, I prefer PyKDE - but that's not very portable. If portability
were an issue, I'd go for JPython - that should run everywere, although
it's no speed demon.
